Putnam Elementary

School of Science


As our staff return from spring break and we get settled in to working remotely on Monday and Tuesday, please be patient as we finalize plans for remote learning. During this week, March 23-27, students can continue to work on their sent-home work packets or read during this week. Our teachers will be designing a remote learning schedule with lessons to support your child's learning beginning the week of March 30. 

As a school, we will be using the Remind App for school-wide & teacher communication and learning. If you do not have it on your phone, please download the app. Your child's teacher will add you to the classroom Remind list. School-wide postings will also be posted on Facebook.

Your child's teacher will be calling you by phone on Monday,3/23 and Tuesday, 3/24 to check-in.  Your child’s teacher will be asking the following questions to ensure we are best able to meet your child’s educational needs and your communication needs:  1) your primary phone number for Remind App and Text messaging   2) technology available (phone, tablet or computer)   3) Pencils, Paper or Books available.

A medida que nuestro personal regresa de las vacaciones de primavera y nos acostumbramos a trabajar de forma remota durante el lunes y martes, les pedimos que por favor tenga paciencia con nosotros, mientras finalizamos los planes para el aprendizaje remoto. Durante la semana del 23 al 27 de marzo, los estudiantes pueden continuar trabajando en sus paquetes de trabajo que enviamos a las casas o leer y a partir de la semana del 30 de marzo, nuestros maestros estarán diseñando un horario para el aprendizaje remoto con lecciones para apoyar el aprendizaje de su hijo(a) en casa.

Como escuela, estaremos usando la aplicación de mensajes de texto, Remind, para comunicarnos con ustedes y para enviar información de aprendizaje. Si no tienen esta aplicación en su teléfono, por favor descárguenla y la/el maestra(o) de su hijo(a) lo(a) agregara a la lista de contactos del salón de clase de su hijo(a). La escuela también estará usando su página de Facebook para hacer anuncios.

El/la maestro(a) de su hijo(a) los estará llamando por teléfono el lunes 23 y el martes 24 de marzo para saludarlos. Cuando hable con el/la maestro(a), por favor déjeles saber si tienen en su casa lo siguiente: 1) su número de teléfono principal que quiere usar para la aplicación Remind App 2) Que tecnología tienen disponible (teléfono, tableta o computadora) 3) Lápices, papel o libros.

Enrichment Classes

Putnam Elementary offers Enrichment Classes to our students on a rotating basis. Students are recommended by the classroom teachers and they are able to select from Art, Music or Technology.  We have 3 sessions that are available during the school year.

Leadership Team - Thank you to Deb Gillan, Elena Diaz vavrina, and Susan Lessard for encouraging our 5th grade leadership team

Putnam PAW Store - Putnam Elementary is a believer in 5 positive recognitions for every one "redirects".  Students receive a Putnam PAW from teachers throughout the building. Every month we have a PAW Store so students can redeem their PAWS for a tangible reward.  Some of the items that students can select at the PAW store are small to promote a positive experience for everyone.  Some of the students elect to save up their PAWS for larger rewards.  We are very fortunate to have a strong community relationship with our First Responders.  Students can save their PAWS to have lunch with Mr. Apodaca, Mr. Furlett, or even a Fort Collins Police Officer or Fort Collins Fire Fighter!

School Assemblies

We are very fortunate to have school assemblies on a quarterly basis.  Our School was selected to receive several new instruments through Can'dAid.  Our students enjoyed a school wide live performance.

Not only is our school a "Centers of Excellence" award winner for THREE years in a row, we are proud to be recognized as a healthy and clean building!
